IK Multimedia make the software available for free for AmpliTube 2 Live users 20/05/08
IK Multimedia has announced that AmpliTube X-GEAR has been made available as a free download for all AmpliTube 2 Live users and StealthPlug users.
Hereâ€™s what they have to say about itâ€¦
AmpliTube X-GEAR is the first completely expandable guitar amp and effects modeling software system, available as a plug-in and standalone version for Mac/PC, that allows mixing and matching between all the gear models from all current and future â€œPowered by AmpliTubeâ€� products in a single host interface; providing seamless control over every parameter directly from IKâ€™s StompIO revolutionary USB floor controller and audio interface. X-GEAR gives users the ability to build the ultimate mega-rig of truly custom guitar and bass tones, live and in the studio.
By integrating AmpliTube 2 Live into X-GEAR, users will get instant access to major new features like:
5 modules including: Tuner, Stomp, Amp, Cabinet and Rack effects (instead of 2 modules)
Double rig with 8 series/parallel configurations (instead of the single fixed rig)
1 new Amp and Cabinet (bringing the number of available Amps and Cabinets to 4)
Custom amp building (thanks to separate Amp Pre, EQ and Power Section now available) now offering up to 192 different amp combinations
More controls like Ambience in the cabinet module and advanced Automation
Possibility to integrate AmpliTube 2 Live with other â€œpowered by AmpliTubeâ€� software applications, including AmpliTube Jimi Hendrix, AmpegÂ® SVX and AmpliTube Metal into a single interface with full mixing and matching between the included gear models
Seamless integration with StompIO advanced USB floor controller and audio interface for using your computer live like the most powerful multi-FX system ever made
AmpliTube 2 Live Users may access all of these new features by downloading and install/authorizing AmpliTube X-GEAR from their IK user area.
